    "RIGHT NOW TRAINS GO THROUGH MARSHFIELD AT ABOUT 20 MPH. BUT WHEN A CONSTRUCTION PROJECT IS WRAPPED UP THAT WILL CHANGE. THEY WILL BE GOING 40 MPH. THE RAILROAD SAYS DRIVERS SHOULD BE HAPPY FOR 2 REASONS. ((THE SAFETY IS BETTER TRAINS WILL GET THROUGH TOWN FASTER.)) THE ROYAL TOKYO RESTAURANT IS RIGHT ACROSS THE ROAD FROM THE TRACKS. THEY HOPE THEY DON'T FEEL THE SPEED CHANGE. ((WHEN THE TRAINS GO BY THE GLASSES IN THE BAR SHAKE.)) ((MOST OF THE CROSSINGS IN MARSHFIELD HAVE LIGHTS AND CROSSING BARS. SO CITY OFFICIALS SAY THEY ARE NOT WORRIED ABOUT DRIVERS. THEY ARE WORRIED ABOUT THE PEDESTRIANS WHO WALK ACROSS THE TRACKS.)) ((WE WORRY THAT THE PEDESTRIANS WILL ESTIMATE THE SPEED OF THE TRAIN WRONG.)) THE CITY IS CONSIDERING PUTTING UP WARNING SIGNS FOR PEDESTRIANS. BUT UNTIL THEN THEY CAUTION EVERYONE TO LOOK AND LISTEN CAREFULLY. THE TRAINS MAY BE MOVING FASTER THAN YOU THINK. "
